There are two fundamental techniques for getting failure data: The Estimation Method and The Prediction Method. This webinar will discuss what each technique consists of, the ways to tell if the data on a certificate is relevant for the application you are using the information on, as well as examples showing each method.
This webinar will also discuss the importance of credible failure rates and why it is important. We will see why all failure rate information must publish a method so any data user can see if the method is applicable to their situation, and must validate the method via comparison with field failure data.
The webinar will conclude with comparisons of failure data that is available, and examples will be provided to fully understand what to look for in failure rate information and the different application restrictions.
